Why do you guys keep the pressure so high? I keep it at 32 all around all the time. It handles best at that pressure around here.

well i tried both 32 and 36, i feel that the car accelerate faster at 36 which makes sense. imo our stock tires are horrible in handling to begin with anyway so i have given up on that.

Sure the car accelerates faster at 36; the contact patch is reduced so rolling resistance is also reduced. Problem is, braking distance also increases!

Also your tires are more likely to wear down the center first.

Ah. what effect does having different tire pressure for the front and back tires have on car handling? I don't know for sure, but in general it's better to have your tires slightly overinflated than slightly underinflated. Underinflated tires can be real dangerous. Can anyone say, "Ford Explorer"?

you are absolutely right. well after driving my old camry for so long (with that cheesy brake) i am used to keeping quite a bit of distance from the car in the front so a longer braking distance isn't a problem for me so far.

Remember - I have Kumho tires. They have a tad bit lower load rating, so they HAVE to be inflated a bit more than stock. I get better performance out of the higher setting with a perfect wear patch. :)
